The Moorland Course at Legends Golf and Resort is a P.B. Dye designed course, which was officially opened in 1990 amid much anticipation. Originally named one of the “Top 10 New Courses of 1990” and “America’s 50 Toughest Golf Courses” by Golf Digest, it also received 4.5 stars from the publication in 2007 and 2009 and has twice been named one of “America’s Top Golf Courses” by Zagat (2003, 2009). Updated TifEagle Bermuda grass was implemented on the greens not too long ago, and some of the undulations around the back end of every hole were slightly leveled as to improve playability for the average player. Still, few are going to mistake this course for being flat.
That is part of the test. Many of the holes bring blind shots into the equation. Add in waste bunkers, a bit of water and the aforementioned elevation changes, and the challenge is readily available for even some of the lowest-handicap players. Take the par-5, 537-yard No. 2, for instance. The hole tempts players to go for the big hit on the second shot hitting into the green, while those playing it safer opt for an elevated fairway just short and to the left of the green. No. 5, a 175-yard par 3, then tempts players to shoot for the pin. What many don’t know is an extreme slope from left to right will take most of those right off the edge of the green and into a waste bunker. The 245-yard Par 4 No. 16 is as potentially dangerous as any. The relatively short hole is protected by six bunkers, some of which can be described as severe.
The course is located just off U.S. 501, a major thoroughfare in and out of the heart of Myrtle Beach.

We did not appreciate the "carts only" with our ages and physical problems.

Disappointed in the Starter staff. Had to wait almost 30 minutes past our tee time to get on the course. Staff not prepared to accommodate golfers. Spent too much time fooling around with each other, rather than making every effort to accommodate their clients. Had to wait for carts because the course did not prepare and plan for their business that day. Pace was slow.

Cart path only. Nothing more to say.

The top of the line. Traditional, unique elevation changes, contoured fairways, tons of water and sand, trees. A marvelous course; I shot terrible but will play it again and again (that's how golfers are).

(Would like to have known prior to play about) seeding, which required carts on path only.
